Filtration Lines

Filtration Soiling

Filtration Soiling

Many homes struggle with dark lines underneath doorways and along baseboards, but yours doesn't have to. Ambassador Chem-Dry can clean those lines or try to lessen the lines.

Why do they happen?

If you have light colored carpet, you may have experienced these dark lines that appear on the carpet. This soiling is called filtration soiling because it comes from air passing through the carpet as it is attempting to get through the crack between the carpet and the baseboard or under a closed door. This occurs over a significant period of time and is not noticed until a build-up has occurred.

How to Prevent Them

This type of soiling is difficult to remove because the soil particles are so fine that they penetrate deep into the carpet pile, sometimes into the backing of the carpet. Can it be removed? Sometimes. With special products, time and effort, reasonable results can be achieved. Call Ambassador Chem-Dry at (813) 962-6214 for a free phone consultation and estimate. To help prevent filtration soiling, vacuum and wipe the edges of the carpeting on a regular basis.
